The article I will be analyzing for the analysis is the Pioneer Press story on a Walgreen's robber's sentencing.
This article had a variety of sources for the material being covered. The term "witness" was used and was never given specific attribution. However, key quotes were made from the suspect's sister as well as employees who reported what the robber said in Walgreen's.
The first source was the police, who basically reported the facts of what happened. This information is important for the reader to feel they're getting reliable and straight forward information.
The next source was the employees, who had reported quotes from the suspect to police. The employees also stated the suspect had possession of drugs and a large knife. This information gives the reader more information on the actual robbery.
Finally, the suspect's sister gave information on her brother's background, explaining his criminal and drug history. She also quoted her brother and how he was feeling after the incident.
The attributions made in this story are overall very clear. They give the story more depth and make the reader feel more informed about what really happened.
